The Big Clean is a free, 1-day conference that addresses the challenges associated with reuse of public sector data. The event rises to the occasion of teaching the members of public how to recycle public data and reuse it in the pursuit of their own goals, ranging from the use of data to power applications, drive societal changes and provide grounds for a data-driven journalism. The Big Clean is focused on three principal topics:
- Screen-scraping: the skill of distilling data out of web pages and other poorly structured sources
- Data refining: the techniques of transforming raw data into usable data
- Data-driven journalism: the craft of telling stories with data.
The event is jointly organized by the National Technical Library and members of the LOD2 project.
Date and time: Saturday 3rd November, 2012, from 9 AM to 5 PM (GMT+1)
